How The Blood Type Diet Plan Works

The Blood type diet is simply a nutrition plan devised according to your blood type, which in turn is the classification of blood according to the level of antigens found on the red blood cells. Blood types include Type A, Type B, Type AB and Type O. There is always an important relationship with your blood type and the food you consume. Genetic inheritance is the main factor that causes a chemical reaction in your body with respect to the food that you eat is an abundant protein found in food called the lectins. The lectins that are absorbed from your typical diet into the blood are unmatched to the natural antigen of your blood type and thus can lead to agglutination or clumping of blood cells. Though not life-threatening, the incorporation of lectins in your blood can cause some critical problems related to clogging of blood cell in certain areas inside your body. Lectins that are specific to certain blood types can be disastrous. Even though majority of lectins entering our body are eliminated by our immune system, certain minute percentage of lectins do filter into the bloodstream to cause clogging. Therefore, it is important to restore our genetic rhythm by following the diet that is best suited to your blood type.
